Hi Everyone:

As you prepare for the holidays, I know that many of you have plates that are overflowing with "to do" lists for the office, school, church and home, just to name a few. So I decided to drop in with a couple of reminders just in case they have fallen off your radar
  1. If you have questions/concerns about Branches and LANs, be sure to submit your questions by DECEMBER 30 by clicking here.  After the holiday season, there will be an informational webinar about the new IAAP structure, and time permitting, the most frequently asked questions will be included and addressed.
  2.  IAAP Headquarters will be closed for the holidays.                                                                      The office will close on December 24 and reopen on Monday, January 5.

Take care, keep warm and enjoy the season!

Well said Nora. You very eloquently said what we need to remember from the past, look forward to for the future, and be thankful for everyday.

Aloha Southwest District:

It is often said that November is the month for giving thanks and that we should take a moment to pause, to reflect and to be grateful for all that we have in our lives. To quote Melody Beattie, "Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." 

More than 150 years ago, when America was split in civil war, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday in November as a day of Thanksgiving. In his first Thanksgiving speech the President stated that difficult times made it more appropriate for our blessings and bounties to be "gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American people."

Similarly, members of IAAP, though not engaged in a civil war, are experiencing what is somewhat of a difficult and challenging time in IAAP history as we transition to becoming a more relevant and revitalized association. If we take a moment to pause and look at what we do have, I'm sure that you will all agree, "with one heart and one voice" that each person who is and has ever been a member of IAAP can't help but feel grateful for the many opportunities that IAAP has provided to each of us to connect, learn, lead and excel in our professional and personal lives. In our own way, we have each become more confident, we have raised the level of our administrative skill set, increased the size of our professional network, have become the "go to" person in our offices, developed a lifetime support system, and the list goes on and on.

By the same token, IAAP has the distinction of being known as the premier association for administrative professionals because of its members. Its members are the ones who believe in the mission and vision of IAAP, they are the ones who spread the word and market IAAP, they are the leaders who plan and develop strategies for growth and succession, they are the volunteers who give their time and energy to make the plans, projects and dreams of the association a reality, they are the people who are innovative, supportive, encouraging and nurturing of fellow members and associates, they are the past, present and future of IAAP.

It is with a grateful heart that I take pause today, on Thanksgiving, to express my sincerest appreciation and gratitude to all of you.... thank you for all that you do and continue to do for IAAP and for our profession. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! May it be a wonderful and memorable occasion shared with family and friends. As you enjoy this holiday, keep warm, be safe and take
a moment to be thankful and to express your gratitude, remembering that "As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy

California members,

You will not want to miss the 38th Annual (and final) Professional Development Day event hosted by five southern California chapters - Bahia, Citrus Valley, Cucamonga Valley, Orange Empire, Valencia Orange County. Join us Saturday, October 4, 2014 at the Diamond Bar Golf Course Banquet Room, 22751 Golden Springs Drive, Diamond Bar, CA 91765.

It has been my privilege to serve as this year's coordinator and to work with a remarkable team that has put together a program extraordinaire.

Registration is now open at https://pdd2014-registration.eventbrite.com. You can also register at the website which is loaded with more information at www.iaap-pdd.org. If you are one who still prefers paper and pen registration we have that too. The program/registration flyer is attached.

If you are still undecided go to the website and click on the speaker image to hear a short video of what they have to say about their topic. This is a super value at $75*. In addition to two speakers we will also have a vendor expo (with early-bird hours beginning at 7:30 a.m.), a welcome bag and delicious brunch.

*Same price for member or non-member so this is a great opportunity to share iaap with someone new. General registration is open until September 9, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time. On September 10, 2014 late registration will begin with a $10 increase in price.

Join us to... connect, learn, lead and excel

Dinner or cruise works for me. I really enjoyed the SW District dinner last year at Knotts Berry Farm.

I'm going to look into some restaurants close to the hotel and try to coordinate something. We'll open it up to all interested SW District members.

I agree that the dinner cruise may be a little out of range - I think a group dinner would be more reasonable for most people.
